While the Byron Bay Bluesfest may have been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak and measures to prevent mass gatherings, another music festival in the coastal town is still hanging on for life this year.
Organisers of Splendour In The Grass have postponed the event from July to October 23-25 for the festival's 20th anniversary.
"Flume, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator have all confirmed their attendance for these new dates alongside most others," organisers said in a statement.
"As this is moving quickly and we work through the detail there will be some programming changes but we are confident that rescheduling to October a one off Spring edition of Splendour is the best way to ensure we present the Splendour experience you all know and love.
"All tickets purchased for the original Splendour July dates are valid for entry on the new October dates."
Ticketholders who are not able to attend over the new dates will be able to apply for a refund from Moshtix, which will contact them directly.
"Good news for those on the waiting list, for any refunded tickets we will do a special ticket release in the coming weeks."
